🚨 POLL: Should Lori Lightfoot step down from her position?

Lori Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago is facing scrutiny after she devoted personal attention to clearing a beach party from the lakefront, but didn’t appear to have the same level of concern for the looters and rioters from trashing the Magnificent Mile and other retail districts, according to Breitbart News.

Over the weekend, Lightfoot shared a photo to Twitter that depicted a large group of shirtless, swimsuit-clad men enjoying the sun at Montrose Beach, near the city’s LGBTQ-friendly Boystown neighborhood.

Lightfoot commented angrily: “It’s called a pandemic, people. This reckless behavior on Montrose Beach is what will cause us to shut down the parks and lakefront. Don’t make us take steps backwards.”

Just under two hours later, Lighfoot shared another round of tweets letting her followers know that she had personally seen to it that the party was curtailed.

Critics accused the mayor of having misplaced priorities:

“We do not need federal troops in Chicago. Period. Full stop,”

More from Breitbart News:

On Sunday evening, a caravan of looters struck downtown and other areas after police shot and wounded a suspect who had fired at them first during a pursuit on the South Side of Chicago. Social media posts called for looting to begin, police said Monday.

Lightfoot later told reporters that she had “a very robust plan” to protect the city from further looting. She told reporters that she and the governor would not be calling out the National Guard, and did not need President Donald Trump’s help.
